Rapid non-stop movements a day after eating

I just got back from work to see my corn snake, Monty, racing around his enclosure, this is very odd as hes usually very calm, the only time I see him moving around is when hes hungry, but I fed him the night before.

He is zooming around his tank trying to get out, I've never seen any snake move this fast.

He's 4 years old, normal corn snake, no known medical issues, hes always been a good feeder, when I've handled him hes very calm, so calm that I let my 4 year old niece play with him.

I'm concerned for him and his well being, like I said, I've never seen a snake move so fast.

I was researching for nearly an hour and I couldn't find anything about corn snakes moving around so abruptly and fast. If you have any ideas or inquiries please reply ASAP.

I would start by checking your temperatures on your enclosures cool side, should be around 75. The warm side as well, should be about 85. If he ate the night before, that’s a good sign as well. If the temps in your enclosure are good I wouldn’t worry about it. If there’s something wrong with him he most likely will regurgitate what you fed him. Sometimes they can very active if they smell a prey item, if the enclosure is too warm, or sometimes before having a bowel movement.
